Challenge

Climate change and COVID 19 have exacerbated the precarious socioeconomic situation of rural and indigenous women, youth and children. Threats such as the degradation of ecosystems, unemployment and food insecurity endanger biodiversity and water availability in communities such as Boruca, Palmar Sur and Rio Celeste, preventing the development of a healthy employability ecosystem that allows the hiring of the population; who have restricted access to education and development opportunities.

Solution

Diwo Ambiental seeks to encourage community projects that promote economic, social and environmental sustainability. It is expected that these projects will be carried out in parallel with an ecosystem restoration process, thus increasing the ecosystem services the communities receive and the participation of various groups led by women and young people who will be future mentors and guides for the following generations.

Long-Term Impact

The development of the project in these three communities is the first step that would allow the initiative to be replicated in other communities in Costa Rica and throughout Central America. These three communities represent an opportunity to develop a pilot plan to generate jobs and green businesses. Despite the fact that many of their ecosystems are degraded, they have great natural and cultural wealth, as well as willingness to undertake projects and productive activities.
